PE Jointing Methods
Jointing Methods There are three weldable jointing methods available for PE (Electrofusion, Butt Fusion and IR Weld). Each method has pros and cons. A brief overview is provided, please see machine section page 286 - 293 for a more details.
Electrofusion welding uses a high current machine to heat an embedded coil in the fitting welding pipe and fitting.
Pros: Quick and easy to use by installer and maintenance Minimal internal beads. Ability to put together and align prior to welding
Cons: Overall length of joint may be longer. Installer needs to adhere to welding techniques.

Butt Fusion Welding
The fusion areas of the pipes and fittings are heated to fusion temperature and joined by means of mechanical pressure, without using additional materials.
Pros: Field units suitable for site work
Cons: Leaves an internal bead within pipe. Long cool down time

IR Welding IR-Welding is a form of butt welding where the heater plate does not meet the pipework. It offers very repeatable weld and utilises a bench style machine. Pros: Very repeatable welding with accuracy to the mm. Weld records of each weld available. As the heater plate has no contact with pipework very little chance of impurities entering weld. Cons: Typically, a workshop machine and not suitable for site installation without a controlled environment. Certification required for machine
